Description

Ballam Park Homestead is the oldest house in Frankston and was built for one of Victoria's early pioneering families, the Liardets, in 1855. The historic homestead has remained practically unchanged in appearance since it was first constructed using bricks made on site.

The Homestead offers a visitor's museum, cafe and resource centre.

Once described by a leading architect as being "perfectly proportioned", Ballam Park is fine example of a French style farmhouse and is listed on the Historic Buildings Council Register in Victoria and only one of two sites in the Municipality classified by the National Trust and on the register of the National Estate.
